HOCKEY players of all ages turned out in their droves last week for a spooky finale to a few weeks of fundraising.

The Fjordhus Reivers hosted several events after being selected as finalists Radio Borders Cash for Kids Charity sports challenge.

Amongst the many highlights on the night was head coach, Janet Jack, being dunked as a witch in freezing water - much to the delight of the young, and older players and supporters.

Janet told us: "The response to the fundraising was overwhelming - the youngest members filled Smartie tubes with 20ps, while the older members sold Squares of Fortune to win a variety of prizes generously donated by the local Borders community.

"We would like to thank our main sponsors Fjordhus and everyone else who played their part over the last few weeks which has seen a considerable amount of money raised for the club with every penny going back in to the club to support and develop the Youth section of the club."

A big scoring weekend led to all players donating £1 for each time their team had hit the net.

And the Ladies third team goalkeeper Helen Montgomery braved the weather to cycle 250 miles in five days.

A Silent Auction with hockey related prizes donated by Complete Hockey Coaching, The Hockey Academy, Internationalists Janet and Charlie Jack, Zoppo Hockey, Aratac Hockey and PSL Team sports raised further money.

But the highlight of the fundraising programme without doubt was the Halloween Fancy Dress Family Fun night held last week at Tweedbank.

Janet added: "Over 250 people turned up to participate in a fun filled night which really highlighted the strength of the Club’s culture, with all participants playing fun hockey in six aside games, dookin’ for apples, catch the donut and celebrating with lots of sweet and savoury snacks provided by players and supporters.

"A big shout out also to Ostle’s Tyres who gave generously to the club by contributing £1 for every tyre sold on October 31."

The club was presented with a cheque for £315 on the night.
